3:06 pm
osama bin laden the world's most wanted man until his death in may two thousand and eleven. over the years al-jazeera is bureau chief in islamabad and dan has interviewed numerous people who met bin laden and his associates. this is the story of bin laden through their eyes. in may nine hundred ninety eight some of bin laden and his associates held a press conference calling for the killing of americans. several months later bomb attacks on the u.s. embassies in kenya and tanzania killed twelve americans and almost three hundred africans. in response the united states launched cruise missiles against sites in sudan and afghanistan believed to be linked to bin laden.
3:07 pm
just before the cruise missiles were launched a top american general arrived in pakistan his mission was to inform pakistan's top brass of the us intention to send missiles over its territory to hit targets in afghanistan. the americans wanted the pakistanis to know the missiles were not in the air. they were afraid the cruise missile attacks might inadvertently trigger a full scale war between pakistan and india two nuclear powers. the eve of the east and come on he game landed in. there pork put it in the evening meeting with the. chief and then had heard the airport and he told them at that time that we had about two hundred some
3:08 pm
as i'd been to understand and i've come good farmers who don't think their compliment as and please inform the government so but it was just half an hour before basically it was a fair company and it literally took us for granted that. they have to approach a lot of thought as a landlocked country. pakistan had failed to convince the taliban to turn over osama bin laden. the americans had demanded bin ladin be expelled. the pakistanis in quite. the taliban refused. following the nine hundred ninety eight bomb attacks in east africa bin laden's name moved higher up on america's most wanted list the cia set up a bin laden unit and the u.s. offered a reward of five million dollars for information about bin laden's whereabouts.
3:09 pm
several years later that reward increased significantly. to germany. as the members of this august house had a rare you know i just said has carried out strikes inside the front of finance with pakistan's foreign minister at the time you spoke before an angry parliament enraged by the u.s. missile strike and what they saw as a violation of pakistani sovereignty and the information suggests that the ms i look back as a result in loss of innocent lives which is because it's concerned. until then the stony officials have heard little from the outside world about the exploits of the saudi born leader. now the surprising thing is be a defense. albrecht. be it bill richardson clinton starting from japan right up to washington i traveled all the skeptic and met
3:10 pm
michael never was the name osama bin laden mentioned i think until all the bombings in east africa in one thousand nine hundred eighty one thousand nine hundred eight the cia certainly underestimated him after that we were the loudest. heralds of warning for the us government. in december one thousand nine hundred ninety nine indian airlines flight eight one four was hijacked by gunmen and forced to land in kandahar in afghanistan. the hijackers believed to be pakistani demanded india release certain militants it
3:11 pm
was holding. they were militants who were known to be close to al qaida they included saeed sheikh and masood. and many of them will sort of put them up on the hook then to show some of the going to look for gonzalez thing than we did i'm going to go to the saudi to has a saudi who should deny the lot if a mechanic of the murphy mobile so i want to step in. for them jim i wasn't up on the phone in the market i am but i'm with the band by the mcduffie has been hindu kind of what if you just. the man is a lot of what i buy from the guy forces me about about a higher but also to my feet but that he by that you. could at what cost they need to set up how the playbook of the been set up about the started to. look at them o'clock in the diffident fortunately not fanatical to be sure had been a legal issue for the have not and that he stood by yet half and who would welcome
3:12 pm
that but in my out what was lost going to my lair you can. put it in the past let me actually. could even by that be only one thing if they ship a sub eleven to them less a little bit of sleet bloody battle and it would be able to open up on that i'm doing without and i would know most of us a lot of us in the eye for that if we did them in if any of them were also the social self even i look at the you know we've been you know that. bin laden's prominence in afghanistan was increasing. al qaida was gaining credibility among its afghan allies. it offered the taliban bomb making experts experienced fighters and money for operations. from its shelter in afghanistan al qaeda sought revenge for the u.s. cruise missile attacks it chose a daring strike against
3:13 pm
a symbol of american power. you know told the truth fellas and a small boat charged with explosives was driven into the u.s.s. cole will ship off the yemeni port of aden. the suicide bombers were killed along with seventeen american sailors. bin laden's showdown with america was intensifying . back in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight he had called on muslims to kill americans including civilians. but he's animosity to america dated back eight years. earlier when u.s. forces deployed in saudi arabia following iraq's invasion of kuwait in ninety nine bin laden accused the americans of desecration what he called holy arab soil he said i'm opposed to the presence of foreign troops in saudi arabia for two reasons islamic reasons and bredfield trivial because he said i don't want my home going to
3:14 pm
be occupied by foreign troops secondly islamic reason because they had. you know the you know the holiest places for muslims and we don't want them close nearby i think it was the entry of the united states military forces and western forces generally and into saudi arabia in one thousand nine hundred ninety one was kind of the turning point for osama bin laden in two ways first it kind of cemented his animosity toward the united states but it also completed his alienation from the saudi government he figured that any was one misalignment government that could invite. western forces into the home of the prophet is. really not a government that he would want to support. a former bodyguard of bin laden revealed to al jazeera that the attack on the
3:15 pm
u.s.s. cole was originally intended to take place further round to see. the ship of some. kind of the. then the ship was on the committee did it do it have to. do it is that you have a sort of. that there would be a. couple . for months of the food you know and safina forced to mean i didn't but i did. you know that. the pressure increased on the taliban to control bin love me and taliban
3:16 pm
representatives were approached by u.s. officials to discuss ways bin laden might be handed over. in the end the diplomatic efforts proved fruitless. but taliban leader mullah omar did impose restrictions on bin laden forbidding him to talk to the media without the consent of the taliban the al qaida leader asked a senior figure in pakistan to intervene. in. the number and i. didn't. say. that he what's. up with cannot or some muslim in a way. but i will. in minimal delmar what they go with the. primitive. if you.
3:17 pm
work. for but it was. shortly after the attack on the u.s.s. cole al jazeera as ahmed said dan was invited to the wedding of bin laden's son. marrying the daughter of muhammad. al qaida as military command given the taliban restrictions imposed upon him the social occasions were away from bin laden to deliver his statement to the media. her. one of her wherever no move her have no more.
3:18 pm
coordination between yemen and the united states increased. american military exercises were held in the area. almost two years to the day after the u.s.s. cole was bombed a jew paquette attack took place. an explosive laden boat rammed into a french oil tanker in the gulf of aden off yemen. al qaida claimed responsibility for the attack. on the back. hard i'm your home more money than my despite mallomars restrictions on bin ladin the relationship between the taliban leader and the al qaeda leader appeared to be strong even though they had no need. other for only a few years it was a relationship noticed by a pakistani journalist who had interviewed bin ladin again to get that he wanted
3:19 pm
but i look like a. lone white out in the woods jesse loved that all they wanted to hear behind bellini and to get them would look like jesse molina with jesse entrance with the will put to me when i was in the can you will get eliminated. i don't know what but just that i why i have something but i got up out of luck but. this is what the many x. so i got up i gave you more now on. the collaboration between the taliban and al qaida seem to benefit bin ladin the. definition of than most of them was. flown by law then while benefited more because of the near shelter charitable bordered on he was the man in
3:20 pm
his life. there will destruction on him. and he will not move on he will probably. go for both of them i mean he reported much of her to morrow morning except through office really is a war with him who support him. in some military. training or. many people are blaming him including myself i also wrote against malone but in one thousand nine hundred six i accept the responsibility. that i had ordered that he is playing an american game because many american diplomats in islamabad and benazir bhutto she was prime minister at that time and she was also supporting well almost. because benazir bhutto was boarding with no more so i thought that maybe he is working for americans and i wrote some columns against him there may be more along was an american game so i was invited by malone what and he
3:21 pm
told me that i'm not an american agent so if i am an american again why i have given refused to. enemy of america was. a bond of loyalty developed between malone and bin ladin. in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight bin laden's arab fighters had helped taliban forces conquer the city of mazar e sharif the last major city in afghanistan. to fall to the taliban. al qaeda had also for too long sought the taliban against its arch enemy the renowned guerrilla fighter ahmed shah masood. bin laden's former bodyguard remembers fighting lawsuits forces advancing on kabul. and for the mother to come i had a mobile one of the market sucked at the cut the deal had become in it to public.
3:22 pm
to come on with. us. in that one that. has come in a whisper to leave a colossal come out of it and select for the. missing . for the key thing. i do miss the latin for good. had to do. with the how the the more sort of how much. jimmy was not. happy. with it when the.
3:23 pm
it appeared to some observers who would keep players in events at the time that bin laden had considerable influence over his taliban allies and noticed a kind of helplessness in the sense that. was guiding the whole thing and he was in combat and not in kabul and obviously he was the first. so it was quite a sort of low key interaction with the americans they were not but they were just telling us to look. they can solve the osama problem. bin laden seemed to have increasing sway he had reportedly prevailed over mullah omar and convinced him to destroy the historic statues of buddha carved into
3:24 pm
a cliff in the bamiyan valley in the hindu kush mountains of central afghanistan. the destruction of the statues in march two thousand and one led to worldwide condemnation and further isolation of the taliban by the international community i told him and that. gives you a lot of aid. and many of the japanese have put this why you want to bring this to choose an item there they did you know could be then relate them somewhere where they didn't put away. all against them so that nobody worshiped him but i mean he had his own conviction about islamic god and he thought he was what he was doing with a great model by islamic going to follow. and when he saw the holy. city . as bin laden strengthened his influence over the taliban in afghanistan he also maintained contacts with religious or clerics in neighboring pakistan. he
3:25 pm
would invite clerics close to the taliban to visit him in order to discuss ideological matters. one of the scholars was the father of abdul rashid ghazi the. good old red mosque in islamabad. and. what invited by osama bin laden and nine hundred ninety eight. in kandahar. and among them my father was also he was also invited. and while he was going there. i went with him. and we met we spend the whole day with osama he was against america and the point was
3:26 pm
that you know that. there is a saying off the prophet that. the. these yahoos and aside from. these the holy places so that was the basic idea. prior to the attacks on september eleventh two thousand and one bin laden was called to high level meeting the telamon they expressed to bin ladin their frustration with ashmit shah masood was forces represent the only cookie military opposition to the taliban and the only such group to be taken seriously in the west. and how to. win the afghanistan is diminished in the least. the most.
3:27 pm
out of our little move. for someone. that. we had to allow them here i mean it is the fellas with us at them but what about the symptom of the blood over what in order to do was he that estimate for them to . see. that in. september eleventh two thousand and one. the holy war or jihad which bin laden had declared against the united states three years earlier and nine hundred ninety eight had now arrived on the streets of america. were about to. a lucky you thought of
3:28 pm
a city the nine eleven attacks sparked a chain reaction of events. america demanded bin ladin be handed over to the taliban refused america went to war the taliban were ousted from power. it was some years later a full bin ladin claim direct responsibility for the attacks. on the muslim on took me thinking what if this moment in the summer when the movement of enough is academy and then you're going on the. one knocked off. sort of government to come on so far too often the nice for profit on moments at the door to the to the center.
3:29 pm
al-jazeera is investigative units reveals tactics used by anti muslim and denies nations to instigate a fear of islam all over greater universe care of the. us over where they're recruiting this stuff is toxic he's a poison salesman we saw the number of attacks against women and men across the country completely skyrocket guys in front of the court so it is a good mix the monitors blood flowing all over my legs al jazeera investigations islamophobia incorporated. the buff of the zionist movement. and the establishment of a jewish homeland in palestine the crucial battle listed his wrist simply getting tears into palestine at any cost hundreds of thousands forced to leave their homes . seventy years on al-jazeera tells the history of what palestinians call

3:40 pm
there will fall mean good was it a good ear buds he bought it or someone equally ready to go in the world with the idea and suck not always going to move it to fall through he would. be on pakistan mithya with core patella when a board sucks for me to go to extra leo and can afford. to feel that the fox say. well. the bond of loyalty between mullah omar and bin laden seemed breakable even saudi arabia had tried to break it years earlier. in one nine hundred ninety eight the chief of the saudi intelligence service had held a heated meeting with mullah omar in a bid to convince him to hand over bin laden. this is the sort of difficult first of. the mess and cooking or of the lebanon. was it off so you think if it was
3:41 pm
in their office with. us it would be a hostile. when there are a lot of. this list of says if you want to have to get them. get into i think the thing about not than an awful amount of fun we're going to go home. one of the at the. the one assumes i'm in crawford. and. on in two thousand and six al jazeera reporter ahmed said done traveled to helmand province in southern afghanistan to meet one of the leaders of the taliban. one on one of the one i was on the. i find. it was.
3:42 pm
the trip took several days of moving from one place to another before finally arriving at a location to meet. one of the taliban senior military commanders. he explained why the taliban refused to hand over bin laden. even though it had resulted in the american invasion of afghan. and had cost the taliban their position of power. in the jet that she does courtesy she doesn't know that our home machine of the hour we're going to call political that would preclude any. of those who though we cheer muslim on chad the spot and. you know as.
3:43 pm
well that the. field. with bin laden dead questions are raised about whether al qaeda will be able to orchestrate any major attacks in the future this footage released by al qaeda offers a glimpse into a possible rudimentary non-conventional weapons program. a new book revealed a plot by al qaeda to kill new york by spreading cyanide gas in
3:44 pm
a subway in two thousand and three. the plan was reportedly called off forty five days before it was set to occur by al qaeda second in command ayman al-zawahiri. was the last reporter to meet and interview. the meeting took place in november two thousand and one in the interview bin laden claimed that al qaeda possessed chemical and nuclear weapons. the most important thing was that. admitted that yes we have nuclear weapons as you may. it clear to me that if americans are going to use nuclear weapons against us then we have the right to respond in the same manner that was
3:45 pm
very clear i put the same question to him in ninety ninety eight and he ignored my question in ninety ninety eight after three years in the number two thousand one he admitted yes we have nuclear weapons which means that in three years he was trying his best to acquire and deploy his weapons and i must tell you don't underestimate nuclear designs of al qaeda a person whose name is synonymous shukrijumah. he was given that. to smuggle. and inside the united states of america between one thousand nine hundred nine and. two thousand and one he smuggled more than ninety kg of inside the united states of america from the mexico and now. i can tell you that he is the next muhammad and he will be responsible for the next
3:46 pm
nine eleven inside the united states of america they can use some kind of dirty bombs i can't rule that out now know that they have embarked on programs to acquire in the vela these weapons certainly chemical biological weapons and we know they have developed toxins poisons and they have they have used them and they intend to expand this program. american concerns were heightened by reports of contacts between al qaida and pakistani scientists. nuclear scientists sultan bashir routine mahmud who had met bin laden was arrested
3:47 pm
and interrogated by pakistani intelligence. he was later released apparently unable to provide any clear information. bin laden's former bodyguard rules else that al qaida had non-conventional weapons before the nine eleven attacks. but he revealed there have been a program underway to try to acquire chemical or biological. all weapons. have a state of mind that they're in the country so honest as much as they let me decide what i do and if he is and what a little something about the ship with i not with us out in the summer forgot that this animal but it was worth a. lot to learn your cause if you did the fed little more because the weather was. comparable to chemo you feel more hearty looking for in a tough week that is the fossil. record that i thought that city did not make the
3:48 pm
dead of. the ne at a coffee shop he took a bit of i had only thought of what i needed and also consider that i had them and the country was got more than a couple kind of a mosque up for the second fiasco have been mad at me these any and all of them are going to get another. look on how to do better with men who did that if i can do you see are the kind of we know that they have is an example anthrax they did develop some of this in afghanistan and al qaeda in affiliates they've got some low grade toxins so there was an example in the u.k. of rison. it's made from from castor beach that was part of an al qaeda cell that developed this. after the fall of the taliban and the flights have been lot and the americans
3:49 pm
discovered documents in four mile kind of basis. the documents indicated the group were much closer than had initially been thought to gaining new clear and biological weapons capabilities american concerns led to the arrest and interrogation of one of pakistan's leading orthopedic surgeons how can an auto predicts agent be involved in making biological weapons i asked the americans this questions and this question and they said you're right. but still it is a possibility the any geisha against me was of providing biological weapons. demichelis weapons of sending dialysis machine to osama bin laden it's a load of total rubbish. i have no idea what antics and chemical weapons are and what they were just telling me was that the supplies that i sent for the delilah bob ward they were empty septic solutions to wash your hands before surgery
3:50 pm
and they told me that they were doing barbers chemicals and they could be used to make bombs and i mean it's amazing you cannot reason with such logic. the killing of al qaeda leader osama bin laden in may two thousand and eleven may be a huge blow to the organization. but it's decentralized nature means it has the potential to carry out attacks on any number of targets. many dedicated al qaida militants
3:51 pm
and supporters will no doubt be ready to give their lives in revenge for the death of bin laden. it's a bit like a nuclear scientists who created the atom bomb. you can go around and arrest all the nuclear scientists but the bomb has been made. remember. that. bin laden four to expel the soviets from afghanistan. years later his al qaeda group led to the americans invading the same country. bin laden was to claim according to one journalist who interviewed him that this was his goal all along. early and the only had had to be there are actually the quite a bit now and here and your general assembly can in the month and in your home. the
3:52 pm

3:53 pm
laden is now dead. al qaeda affiliates across the world the likely to remain active . meanwhile american troops remain in afghanistan. conflict is likely to continue.
